Indian Nifty is the part and parcel of a Day Traders Chest of Tools.

Without looking at the Indian Nifty charts early morning, trading wouldn’t start.

Any me a full time trader and Nifty Options trader, cannot any day go without an Indian nifty chart.

Nifty Trend Today is the first thing I blog about daily.

I do an analysis of the Indian Nifty Trend using multiple indicators using the following:

  1. SGX Nifty Trend
  2. Global Markets Trend
  3. Technical Analysis


I usually trade in Nifty options or Nifty Futures. For Options writing or Nifty Futures, we need Nifty Futures Margin.

Nifty Futures trading time for me is from 9:30 Am – 11:30 AM and 1:30 – 3:30PM due to the trending pattern.

I like to scalp in between during the sideways market, which I teach in my options trading course.

Without further ado, let’s jump into learning everything about CNX Nifty.
